This timely webinar will provide a “mid-year” update on the federal and state health and education policy—and what it means for advancing the learning and health connection. Key topics that will be addressed include the implications of the President’s FY 2020 budget, trends in state health and education policies and priorities, opportunities and challenges in Medicaid for supporting the health of children and families, including Medicaid waivers, opportunities to expand access to behavioral health services and implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act.
